  1. LoverCop1989 scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    A really solid drop. Very pleasant and balanced for the price of the smell and taste. The finish disappointed me. This is very short and the bitterness comes through strongly. Price-performance ratio "good" and wonderfully suitable for beginners.

  11. MaroFF scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Another 12-year-old whisky at a very good price and of course even better taste. Whisky novice drinkers will not be disappointed.
    First I drank it outside at 6 ° C, then at room temperature in the living room. In both cases it is fresh, quite expressive, although in the living room it seems to be more perfect and refined. Certainly, time to aerate and clarify the flavor palette before tasting.

  23. Vince scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    drinkable if one is paying no attention to what they're having. no charisma whatever.

  24. lincolnimp scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    I found this tasted much younger than its stated 12 years, taste more like a 5 year old, not well balanced, rough even and not great profile wise, very middle of the road so a score of 75 points, I would not buy a bottle, buy a Glenmorangie 10 year which is much better.

  25. maltaholic scored this whisky 71 points Connoisseur

    Singleton of Dufftown 12 years, 2018, 40%

    New edition, Age Statement, just 25 € the bottle.
    Let's see...

    A little piercing and sharp,
    slight sherry note.
    But also a few spices.

    The spice predominates in the mouth.
    Laurel, a bit dry.
    The taste does not cut me off the stool.
    As if only the bad barrels wandered here.

    No, you do not have to.

  26. luke8x scored this whisky 76 points Newbie

    This was my first Whisky I started drink with taste and love Speyside region. Great for beginners.
    • Nose

      Fruits, chocolate.
    • Taste
      81 81
      Light, but very tasty, like an alkohol cake ;)
    • Finish
      77 77
      Short-Mid. Fruity and sweet. Sometimes seems to be a bit short, but I like it.

  27. diamond2000 scored this whisky 77 points Expert Junior

    Aroma: sweet and fruity, honey, dried ginger, a little bit of yeast, as in the crumb of white bread, juice of exotic, fragrant citrus peel, fruit lozenges.

    Taste: bittersweet, caramel, apple jam, herbal bitterness, honey, pinching spices, lemonade.

    Finish: shorter than average, delicate, caramel with fruit filling, ginger, bitterness of zest.

    Rating: 77

    Bottom line: although the aroma is rustic, it is rather pleasant, the taste and finish are descending. Whisky that is not debugged in memory, sweet, easy to drink, but really quite simple. Its advantage is the price, for shares you can buy instead of 12 summer blends.
